[/caption]Yesterday in the School of Computing/ IDEAS Research Institure at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, we took ownership of one of the new Samsung SUR40 Microsoft Surface devices. One of the lecturers in the School, Daniel Doolan recorded the unboxing and posted the video on our Vimeo Channel. Click his link above to see his post and the video.
One of the main differences between the original Surface and the second incarnation is the use of PixelSense
. The new technology replaces the cameras that were built into the previous unit which allows the new one to be much neater in size. Effectively to describe it in a sentence: sensors in the pixels pick up the interactions on the screen and report them back to the software.
